The Joanna Nichols Memorial Libraries
The libraries are at the center of teaching and learning at Taipei American School and are committed to fostering student curiosity and a lifelong love of reading. Library programs and collections evolve with the school curriculum and community needs.
Designed for Learning
Each of the four TAS libraries has a thoughtfully designed and age-appropriate space, a rich collection of print materials, and an extensive selection of online materials including eBooks, audiobooks, databases, and other digital resources.
A joyful place with thousands of books for developing readers to explore, and a hub for after-school events and activities.
A resource for learning and the joy of reading, where students practice key digital and analog skills.
A perfect place for research, collaboration, and relaxation, with silent study spaces and group work rooms.
A robust collection supporting our Mandarin language curriculum, with a dedicated presentation space.
A Place for Community
Professional librarians encourage and support inquiry, critical thinking, and age-appropriate information-seeking behavior with increasing independence and complexity through each division. The libraries also serve as venues for author visits, social events, and meeting spaces for the entire TAS community, and are widely used throughout the week.
